Testing transpiled TypeScript Ionic2


I’m making an Ionic2 project with TypeScript and I’m having the hardest time figuring out how to test it. Even Angular2 doesn’t really seem to have a good method for unit and e2e tests with TypeScript transpiling. It seems this is the problem with developing on the bleeding edge of technology – tooling isn’t quite there yet.

I’m curious if anyone has successfully gotten a test framework set up with TypeScript transpiling for Ionic2.


I was able to get a crappy cobbled-together test running, but it’s incredibly brittle and not at all maintainable. Has anyone had success with creating a test framework for Ionic2? Or even Angular2 for that matter?
